Korean-based Yujin Robot continues to release thoughtful new products. They just announced a meal-transport robot designed to operate in eldercare and other hospitality and health care facilities.

Yujin’s new GoCart robot is a joint venture between Yujin and ScanBox, a designer and manufacturer of food transport systems for hospitality and institutional faciliities around the world. GoCart maps its environment and uses an array of sensors and cameras to autonomously carry its cargo without interfering with people or other objects along its path. It also has an Internet-of-Things interface so that it can connect with existing IT systems and works with smartphones, tablets and PCs.

A third partner in the new GoCart venture is the Horst Construction company, a property management and senior care facility builder, insurer and property manager.

Field tests of the new GoCart will begin this October in two locations: the US and Sweden.

In 2011 Yujin produced the iRobiQ robot, an English teaching robot for kindergarten classes throughout South Korea.

Thereafter they released a complete line of robotic vacuum cleaners for the Asian market as well as a research mobility device predicated on their Kobuki mobility platform and called Turtle-bots.
